NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, reminds purchasers of the securities of Prudential Financial, Inc. (NYSE:PRU) between February 15, 2019 and August 2, 2019, inclusive (the “Class Period”) of the important January 27, 2020 lead plaintiff deadline in the securities class action. The lawsuit seeks to recover damages for Prudential investors under the federal securities laws.

NO CLASS HAS YET BEEN CERTIFIED IN THE ABOVE ACTION. UNTIL A CLASS IS CERTIFIED, YOU ARE NOT REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL UNLESS YOU RETAIN ONE. YOU MAY RETAIN COUNSEL OF YOUR CHOICE. YOU MAY ALSO REMAIN AN ABSENT CLASS MEMBER AND DO NOTHING AT THIS POINT. AN INVESTOR’S ABILITY TO SHARE IN ANY POTENTIAL FUTURE RECOVERY IS NOT DEPENDENT UPON SERVING AS LEAD PLAINTIFF.

According to the lawsuit, defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Prudential’s reserve assumptions failed to account for adversely developing mortality experience in its Individual Life business segment; (2) Prudential was not over-reserved, but instead, its reported reserves, particularly for the Individual Life business segment, were insufficient to satisfy its future policy benefits liabilities; (3) Prudential had materially understated its liabilities and overstated net income as a result of flawed assumptions in calculating mortality experience; and (4) as a result, Prudential’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than January 27, 2020.
